Soyka Restaurant Miami Review
I recently wore this lovely dress on a date with the Hubs to Soyka during a crazy Miami rain storm. I love Soyka! It’s a great romantic restaurant near Midtown Miami/Downtown. When I used to live in the area, there were few upscale restaurants. Even now there still isn’t much quite as romantically decorated. The outdoor (but totally covered from rain) garden area is the perfect place for couples to sit and reconnect. Imagine an alley bistro in Italy or France. It reminds me so much of Europe, only the clean picturesque parts.
This place is so gorgeous I really don’t care if the food is blah, but thankfully…it’s fabulous! I ordered the Soyka house salad. It was good. Fresh ingredients and copious amount of dressing on the side. I love when they give you dressing on the side in such a nice quantity. You can really add to taste. While it was good, I think I’ll try the Cesare next time.
For my main course I went with a half portion of FIOCCHI ALLE PERE: Pear, ricotta and mascarpone pasta purses, parmesan cream. It was perfect! It is a little heavy, but delicious. The half portion was perfect, in fact, I didn’t even finish it.
Hubby went with the SESAME SALMON: Ginger soy, wild mushrooms, roasted red peppers, spinach, jasmine rice. Great sesame crust and perfectly seasoned. However, he felt it wasn’t cooked medium-rare and that it was surely previously frozen. Overall, he really enjoyed the dish.
I ordered two lattes’ because the first one was simple but great. I love they provide brown sugar without having to ask for it. That’s a big deal for me. Got to have my brown sugar!
I was excited to try their chocolate soufflé and made sure to pre-order it immediately (it takes 45 minutes to make). Unfortunately, the souffle must not have turned out well or perhaps it fell. Either way the server allowed us to choose another dessert on the house due to the wait. We went with the bread pudding. It was actually soufflé-like! Imagine a warm gooey French toast with a side of delicious cream. It’s their most popular dessert.
Obviously, I will be back. It’s just so beautiful. They don’t seem to be a part of Miami Spice this year, though. 🙁 Be sure to make reservations in the garden area with your sweetheart!
